The Mangrove Action Project (MAP) is dedicated to reversing the degradation and loss of mangrove forests. These unique coastal ecosystems linking land and sea, play a vital role in helping to keep our planet healthy. Mangroves once sheltered three-quarters of tropical and subtropical shorelines. Today, only half remain.

Environment
The Cayman Islands are vulnerable to hurricanes, particularly from July to November.1 The Cayman Islands are also home to the blue iguana, an endangered species, and the Queen Elizabeth II Royal Botanic Park acts as a sanctuary for the blue iguana.2 Due to the efforts of Fred Burton and the Royal Botanic Park, the blue iguana was removed from the critically endangered list in 2013.3 The island has no fresh groundwater resources, and relies upon reverse osmosis water treatment plants to provide its population with water.4 Additionally, there are inadequate waste treatment and recycling facilities on the island.5
